UN General Assembly September 2023 - Question (18 Oct 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, the Secretary-General of the United Nations has today called for a humanitarian ceasefire in Israel. We need the hostages home safely to their people, and we need to stop the unnecessary bombing of innocent men, women and children. Does the Minister agree?

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prison Sentences ( 2 Oct 2023)

Lord Woodley: To ask His Majesty's Government how many prisoners currently serving an Imprisonment for Public Protection sentence have served more than (1) 5, (2) 10, or (3) 15, years over their original tariff.

Written Answers — Ministry of Justice: Prison Sentences ( 2 Oct 2023)

Lord Woodley: To ask His Majesty's Government how many prisoners serving an Imprisonment for Public Protection sentence have (1) died, (2) been transferred to secure hospitals, or (3) been sent to another country under the Tariff-Expired Removal Scheme, in each of the past 10 years.

Employers: Fire and Rehire Tactics - Question (14 Sep 2023)

Lord Woodley: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to prevent employers from using fire and rehire tactics.

Employers: Fire and Rehire Tactics - Question (14 Sep 2023)

Lord Woodley: The code of practice as published is toothless, unfortunately. It contains no legal obligations on employers and adds only 25% to any compensation, no matter how small it may be—that is no solution. As we all know, what is needed is legislation—as there was in Australia this week—to end the scandal of fire and rehire; most decent people in this place and across the country support that...

Employers: Fire and Rehire Tactics - Question (14 Sep 2023)

Lord Woodley: With respect, I will continue. I have been informed that my Bill will not get a Second Reading. Can the Minister explain why the Government seem to be using every trick in the parliamentary playbook to prevent us even debating this much-needed change in the law?

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises: Interest Rates - Question (13 Sep 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, the Government hold approximately 39% of share capital in NatWest and therefore are in a very powerful position to influence the bank’s policy and to provide small and medium companies with low-interest financial support. They could even turn NatWest into a specialist support hub. Have the Government presented any specific proposals to NatWest in this regard?

Stroke Care - Question (24 Jul 2023)

Lord Woodley: I speak with experience, having seen my wife suffer a very serious stroke more than a decade ago. As the right reverend Prelate said, speed is of the essence. Not one but two ambulances arrived within 15 minutes and she was in hospital within 25 minutes; they saved her life at Chester County Hospital. Does the Minister agree that things have got worse and worse over the last decade and that,...

Rail Ticket Offices - Commons Urgent Question (12 Jul 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, I speak from personal experience, having travelled up and down from Liverpool twice this week alone. Only this morning, I was listening to the staff there who were worried sick about their jobs, but more importantly, I watched a partially sighted customer trying to get help and support which would not have been available had there been no assistant to help them. This is not about...

Low Traffic Neighbourhoods - Question ( 3 Jul 2023)

Lord Woodley: Speaking of convenience and safe movement of traffic, can the Minister say what is happening with autonomous vehicles, be they cars, lorries or buses, particularly with the trials going on in this country and stretching right across Europe?

Industrial Strategy - Question (20 Jun 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, I have raised my serious concerns about the lack of industrial strategy for the automotive sectors, important as they are for our country. But I also pay tribute to the Government for supporting the Jaguar Land Rover battery plant that could easily have gone to Spain—well done. But does the Minister agree that this is small compared with the billions and trillions being set aside...

Miscarriages of Justice - Question (14 Jun 2023)

Lord Woodley: To ask His Majesty’s Government what steps they are taking to prevent miscarriages of justice.

Miscarriages of Justice - Question (14 Jun 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, I appreciate the Minister’s Answer, but honestly, I am increasingly concerned that, whether through joint enterprise, guilt-by-association sentences or IPP sentences abolished a decade ago but not retrospectively, there are still thousands of prisoners who are rotting away with little or no hope of finding justice. It seems to be going nowhere. So, what is the Minister doing to...

Illegal Migration Bill - Committee (3rd Day): Amendment 57B ( 7 Jun 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, as we can see, there has been an inevitable crossover between this group of amendments and the previous ones, as the noble Lords, Lord German and Lord Balfe, mentioned. I rise in support of this last group of amendments put forward by my noble friend Lord Davies. For workers, there can be no doubt: it is somewhat disgraceful that Ministers are seeking to make transport workers...

Automotive Manufacturing Sector: Support - Question (15 May 2023)

Lord Woodley: To ask His Majesty’s Government what is their investment strategy to support the automotive manufacturing sector in the United Kingdom.

Automotive Manufacturing Sector: Support - Question (15 May 2023)

Lord Woodley: My Lords, in my opinion, what appears to be missing here is a proper government strategy for the automotive sector as part of a much wider industrial strategy. The House will be well aware that the EU’s Green Deal industrial plan is in place, with tens of billions of euros in manufacturing grants topped up by literally hundreds of billions in loans to companies, while the US is investing...
